Geodatabase returns empty GeodatabaseFeatureTables collection

I have come across a number of cases where the Geodatabase object has an empty collection of GeodatabaseFeatureTables.  I have gone back and recreated everything from scratch, sometimes I have seen it fix the issues others not.  When generating these replicas everything goes fine, I have checked Server logs and these only contain debug/info messages.  Nothing indicative of errors.  I can open the databases in DB Browser for SQLLite and everything looks fine.


After a bunch of research I have found one difference.  The databases that work all seem to have a table called GDB_ServiceItems.  The databases that show no layers none appear to have this table.


So a question, would this table missing cause the API to behave in this manner?  Does the initialization of the Geodatabase object look to this table for information about the tables?
